Caliander is the calendar that lets you create events faster and with less effort while keeping you on top of things with its smart and unique presentation. It uses the same calendar database as Calendar.app/iCal, so it syncs with iCloud and all your devices as usual, and all your events are there—no migration needed!
Caliander is all about removing the effort it takes to maintain a calendar. Here are some of the top benefits:
- Timeline based dynamic presentation that sheds the limitations of old, static paper calendars.
- Switch on the perceptual log mode and the distant future is squeezed together to show the more import near future in greater detail. You’ll see today’s schedule in great detail, but still be reminded of all the things coming up in the next couple of days. You won't miss mum's birthday again!
- Adding events as easy as pressing ⌘N and typing "fri 5 pm After Work". x5 faster than fooling around with the mouse!
- Create events from any application, anytime using a global keyboard shortcut, even if Caliander isn't running!
No Lock In!
Because it uses the Mac OS X Calendar Store, the same calendar database that Calendar.app/iCal uses, you don't have to be afraid of your events being stuck in some proprietary format. Everything you do in Caliander immediately shows up in Calendar and vice versa. (Requires Mountain Lion. On Lion a restart of Caliander/iCal is required).

What's New in Version 1.1.5
- Fixes a bug which caused Reminders.app calendars to be shown on Mavericks.
Excellent calendar-viewing utility
I don’t use it to create new events (though I could) because I’ve long used Fantastical (integrated with Alfred) for that and have no reason to change. Where Caliander shines is giving you a very usable perspective on a fair amount of time into the future, with the Perceptual Log Mode emphasizing the near term while still keeping the longer term in your view.
I’ve been running it in parallel with a few other contenders (Blotter and TimeWorks) and it’s Caliander that I find usefully reminds me of things coming up that had slipped my mind.
